more on the way

Fear not: more movie reviews are on the way, including ones not on the original list. I saw "Coraline" years ago but didn't review it, so I ordered it on Amazon Prime to rewatch, and I've also ordered "ParaNorman." Both of these movies come from the animation house Laika, which has released the tremendous-looking "Kubo and the Two Strings," a movie I've been dying to see ever since I saw the first preview trailers a few months ago (have a peek). So you could say I'm Laika-ing up before "Kubo" comes to Korea.

Meantime, expect reviews of:

• "Sherlock Holmes" (2009)
• "Machete"
• "Machete Kills"
• "The Expendables 3"
• "Last Days in the Desert"
• "Coraline"
• "ParaNorman"

Coming soon to a monitor near you.

We own Coraline on DVD and I've never watched it. I'll be very interested in your review. The first 15 minutes I watched didn't 'catch' me.

It's a weird story that goes for a Tim Burton-style weird-but-cute vibe. It didn't really catch me either, despite a second viewing last night. Maybe it's just the film's aesthetics, or maybe it's the strange story, or maybe it's a combination.

There—I've written my review!

Yeah, just not moved to dig it out and watch it. Thanks for the review!

(I don't feel like I'm missing anything.)
